For a romantic weekend away, Summer Lodge, in the pretty village of Evershot, is the ultimate country house hotel. It oozes history and atmosphere – the west wing of the hotel was designed by Thomas Hardy himself during his days as an architect – while the ambience is friendly and relaxed with attentive, discreet service. The large, luxurious rooms are decorated in traditional style, ranging from country cottage to stately home, and come with nice touches such as a fruit basket and homemade shortcake. The facilities are good too: four acres of manicured grounds containing tennis courts and a croquet lawn, an indoor pool and spa, plus a top-notch restaurant. None of this comes cheap, but it’s worth it if you’re looking for a luxurious treat.
PriceDouble rooms start at around £350 a night.
